How Not to Moderate a Blog

If you own a blog, or write for a multi person blog, you
can choose to moderate that blog anyway you want.
After blogging for three and  a half years, I think I may
be able to hand out some advice though.

You can choose to delete posts from a comment thread,
you can choose to ban posters, you can ask posters not
to post in a certain thread.

I feel though, when you publicly tell a poster on a thread
that your not going to allow them to post on that thread, that
is equivalent to a petchulant little child, putting their fingers in
their ears and saying, Nyah Nyah Na  Nyah Nyah.

Just my thoughts, huh.
